From the swan's neck pediment to the multilight windows, the side gabled Homestead is an American classic plan. With 2280 square feet, it's one of the larger plans offered in the Standard catalog in 1926. With four large bedrooms, a full bath and a shared half bath between two bedrooms upstairs, there is ample private space for all but the largest families. Access to additional storage supplements the closet space. On the main floor, a large 400 square foot living room opens to a covered side porch. A large reception all provides traffic flow through the house. The formal dining room opens to a sun porch. A second convenient half bath is just off the kitchen.
Permanent and substantial beauty is expressed in every line of the The Homestead. It is typical of the oldest and best loved homes in America--homes that hold our hearts and spur our efforts toward greater achievements. Surely the comforts of such homes as The Homestead cannot pass with a single generation."
